Five15 Arts presents: Fifth Annual Five15

July/August 2016

Five15 Arts is a member run art gallery in the heart of downtown Phoenix’s Roosevelt Row Gallery District. For the fifth year in a row, our members will be exhibiting alongside five other artists they’ve invited to participate. All the artwork will be 12”x12”, resulting in a diverse salon style exhibition with over sixty works of art. We hope you’ll join us!

 

This was the final exhibition at Gallery Five15.

The property has been sold and is slated for re-development. We were sad to learn of this development. It is bittersweet to have been part of the final exhibition at this long-time Roosevelt Row cooperative, contemporary art venue.  Five15 to the Fifth is the fifth annual gallery invitational exhibition. Jeff Reich and Farraday Newsome were invited to participate by Gallery Five15 member Susan Risi.

The Tempe Center for the Arts Gallery will be showing the 2016 TCA Juried Biennial: CLAY this fall season.


The exhibition was juried by Peter Held, art appraiser/consultant, Garth Johnson, curator at Arizona State Art Museum Ceramic Research Center and Patsy Cox, artist and outgoing NCECA (National Council for Education in the Ceramic Arts) president. Jeff Reich and Farraday Newsome are among the artists included. http://www.tempe.gov/city-hall/community-services/tempe-center-for-the-arts


Where: Tempe Center for the Arts, 700 West Rio Salado Parkway, Tempe, Arizona

When: September 30 - December, 2016. Opening reception Friday, September 30, 6-9pm

We were thrilled to be featured in the Arizona Republic’s “Cool Home” series this past month! Journalist Susie Steckner wrote a wonderful article about our home, studio, native landscaping and garden.

As we were walking along we were surprised to see a large herd of goats and sheep grazing just off the cliffside trail in Half Moon Bay. We learned that they would be there for a few weeks to assist in land management, hired by the Coastside Land Trust to to clear invasive plant species.

We recently visited Farraday’s mother, Barbara Newsome, at her home in Santa Cruz, California.

One of the many rocky beaches along the beautiful Pacific coastline between San Francisco and Santa Cruz. 

Jeff on a shoreline trail in Half Moon Bay. The low-lying coastal scrub is surprisingly colorful when seen up close, reminding us of the short, dense, colorful alpine plant communities we’ve seen in the past at high altitudes.

Late summer brings rain to the desert and the resultant flowering of many plants. Our Mexican Twister Cactus (Cereus hildmannianus subsp. uruguayanus) is in full bloom. This cactus, under the cover of a mesquite tree, also provides a bird (dove) nest site. A piece by Farraday Newsome is hanging on the garden wall.
